Building Code Requirements for Structural Plain Concrete
|Publication Date:||1 January 1992|
This code provides minimum requirements for design and construction of structural plain concrete members (cast-in-place or precast) of any structure erected under requirements of the legally adopted general building code of which this code forms a part.
In areas without a legally adopted building code, this code defines minimum acceptable standards of design and construction practice.
This code supplements the general building code and "Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-89) (Revise1992)"* and shall govern in all matters pertaining to structural plain concrete design and construction except wherever this code is in conflict with requirements of the legally adopted general building code. Requirements of ACI 318.1-89 (Revised 1992) should govern where in conflict with requirements of ACI 318-89 (Revised 1992).
All applicable provisions of ACI 318 not in conflict with provisions of this code shall apply to plain concrete.
This code shall govern in all matters pertaining to design, construction, and material properties wherever this code is in conflict with requirements contained in other standards referenced in this code or recommended practices referenced this code.
For special structures, such as arches, underground utility structures, gravity walls, and shielding walls, provisions of this code shall govern where applicable.
